Which Mobility Scooter Is Right for You?
Buying a mobility scooter is a big investment, but itís a practical one too. A mobility scooter will help you hold on to your independence and get out and about safely. And some models can even be taken on holiday, so you wonít have to hire one. But with so many options to choose from, finding the one that suits you can be a daunting decision.
There are a few different types of mobility scooter, each with features and benefits designed to suit specific needs and lifestyles.
Travel Mobility Scooters
Travel mobility scooters, also known as portable mobility scooters, are the smallest and lightest class of scooter. These models can be dismantled for convenient storage and transportation, ideal for slipping into the boot of your car for holidays and days out. Travel scooters typically have smaller batteries, so they are better suited for shorter trips.
Folding Mobility Scooters
Folding mobility scooters use advances in mobility scooter technology to offer a really convenient alternative. They are compact and lightweight, like travel mobility scooters, but they donít need to be disassembled for transportation and storage. Instead, just one click on the key fob will automatically fold the frame into a compact, portable scooter.
Pavement Mobility Scooters
Whether youíre off to the shops, running some errands or visiting friends and family, pavement scooters are great everyday scooters designed for short trips out and about. A maximum speed of 4mph but a sturdier build with extra features ensures you get from A to B quickly, safely and comfortably.
8mph Road Mobility Scooters
8mph scooters are road-legal mobility scooters with everything you need for safe and comfortable long-distance travel. Many 6-8mph mobility scooters offer travel ranges over a whopping 30 miles thanks to larger, more powerful batteries. And their larger, sturdier builds will help you to reclaim the road, with full lighting kits and mirrors included for extra safety.
